In images 1-4 the idea of life and death is illustrated through sheet glass and blow mold forms. When one views life with a realistic...some might say cynical mind, you realize the positive aspects of death and the negative aspects of life. Our lives consist mostly of trials and tribulations. Life is a journey through disappointment, pain, sorrow, experiences of deception and loss. Often, people mistake life for a completely happy and free type of existance. But I view it differently. I view it realisticly for that is the only way I've ever known life to be. Constantly having to react to a negative occurance. Death to me seems more free. It is a resting point, it brings peace to the body and to the soul. When a person dies people are upset. And i wonder does one become sad because someone is no longer alive or is it really because you're the one being left behind.
The next is a self portrait oil on canvas that is sheilded by a layer of clear glass cane. The piece was created to express my slavery to desire.
